Toddler reunited with parents after wandering into street

Boy found, removed from street by a driver


On Friday morning, a toddler was reunited with his parents after wandering out of his yard’s back gate into the street.

At 9:49 a.m., an employee of South Suburban Parks and Recreation called the Littleton Police Department reporting they saw a boy in the street alone, near the corner of South Gallup Street and West Caley Avenue. The employee, who was driving when he saw the child, immediately stopped, moved the child out of danger and made the call.

Officers responded to the scene and stayed with the child, knocking on doors and looking for the parents, Littleton Police Department spokesperson Sheera Poelman said.

In addition, the department posted a notice on their website, Twitter and Facebook asking community members to help the department find the parents.

The parents of the child were out looking for their son when they saw the officers with him and were reunited at 10:35 a.m., according to Poelman.

There are no criminal charges related to the situation, she said.

“We’re so thankful it all worked out,” Poelman said.
